I was first licensed as a HAM in March of 2016 and recently upgraded my license to a Amateur Extra in January of 2017. I have recently become a VE to assist in getting others licensed and interested in this wonderful hobby. I look forward to learning more about the hobby over the years to come. I am a long time member of The American Legion and the 40&8. I have lived in Palm Beach County for over 30 years.
